Re: Made it 1 yr & question about DQ
When I read this post, I thought you must have a question about Dairy Queen...
De Quervain's is also called "Mom's Thumb" for a reason. It's really common. I had it (though not from carrying my babies- it was from my dog pulling really hard on her leash) and over the years there have been a fair number of moms writing in on this forum about this problem. Best thing you can do for de Quervain's is to use a brace, and not to let your hands sag from your wrists when you pick up the baby or other heavy item. Try to keep your hands pointing straight out from your wrists. That will keep the tendon from being stretched out and injured.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
